The DFSK brand of the superior but affordable seven-seater SUVs has now expanded its Glory line-up for the Brunei market. TCY Motors as the importer of the Chinese automotive brand launched the flagship Glory i-Auto and 580 SUV this week.

Both models are powered by a turbocharged engine with 148hp/220Nm output coupled with a new-gen CVT transmission, which meets strict EURO-4 compliance.

The flagship i-Auto is branded as an intelligent SUV featuring the i-Talk voice command system with over 100 voice activated functions in English.

A host of other value-added equipment includes an automatic power tailgate using foot motion when your hands are full. A smart vehicle recorder is a bonus on both the i-Auto and 580, negating the need for buyers to spend more money to purchase aftermarket recorders.

Full LED lighting technology, smart touchscreen with smartphone interface and 360-degree parking camera are just some features to complete the look.

The Glory 580 comes with a more streamlined body design, a sunroof and vehicle recorder. All the Glory SUV models offer leather seats and spacious comfort for seven passengers.

Both the i-Auto and 580 earned the full five-star rating from China NCAP to offer a peace of mind for drivers in terms of safety standard.
